Kate Gosselin’s bodyguard boyfriend is still with his wife, she posts family photos on FB

Above is a photo of Steve Neild, known to the public as Kate Gosselin’s bodyguard boyfriend, with his wife and two young adult sons. (I cut the sons out.) Neild’s wife, Gina, posted the photo to Facebook in mid-January. Her profile is semi-public in that anyone can see the photos she posts, and Radar just noticed that Gina has been including Steve on her page. This is despite the fact that Steve has been rumored to have been sleeping with Kate Gosselin for at least five years. Kate famously flipped out on Steve’s behalf on the last episode of her reality show. Numerous eyewitnesses have seen Kate and Steve looking like a couple, most recently this month.

So Steve and Kate are still together, and I wonder if Kate is still paying him to show up or if Steve just sees her when it’s convenient for him. What is Steve telling his wife? Is he telling her it’s strictly business and is she buying it or is she just putting up a good front for the public? Is Steve’s wife staying with him for the sake of their kids? Also, what the hell does Steve see in Kate? Is he a masochist? I’m really curious.

Meanwhile Kate’s ex husband, Jon, is ranting about how upset he is that his children will be featured on a on-off TLC special in June. He told E! [via Radar] that he “was heartbroken to learn my children are participating in yet another TV project, especially an ‘update’ special. Even without a current television show, they still live a very public life. They’re still constantly in and out of the media; updates are given practically daily via social media.” Jon added that he’s outraged that TLC “didn’t feel the situation warranted even a simple phone call to me.” Shouldn’t Jon be mad at Kate, not TLC? Kate is pulling the strings. Also, it’s not like he has room to talk. He wished death on Kate, on camera, as part of some trumped-up plot for his Couple’s Therapy reality show appearance. He’s also repeatedly threatened to seek custody of his children, something he hasn’t followed up on. I’m not saying he’s wrong, I agree that his kids should be kept off television and social media, I’m just saying he’s not in a position to take the high road.

These are older photos of Jon and Kate, they’re screenshots from E!’s recent videos, I just loved their expressions.

    Wow. She just looks like such a joyful woman, you know? (Cough)

      Raging Attention Starved Bitch… That is the word You are looking for

      But for reals how does that work? the wige knows and doesn’t care cause he is bringing the money or…?

      • mimif says:

        It took me a minute to realize you meant the wife and not the hair on Kate’s head, because if I was the wig I would definitely be getting the hell out of there.

      • JessMa says:

        The question is what money. I don’t think she can afford a bodyguard at this point.

    • Christin says:

      Which makes his ‘job’ all the more questionable. Who would want to put up with it?

      Does his family life outside PA? If so, what kind of travel and work schedule does he have? And the obvious question — how does she manage to pay him now?

      • QQ says:

        She pays him in sex and Icy Cold Bitch staredowns?

      • Christin says:

        QQ – What benefits –LOL!

      • Belle Epoch says:

        She does NOT need a bodyguard! You couldn’t GIVE that woman away! What a strange man.

      • mayamae says:

        I’ve never really believed he was her boyfriend. Jon and Kate slung a lot of mud at each other. I think if she were really sleeping with this guy, Jon would be shouting it out loud.

        @Belle Epoch, people adore her kids. I could see someone going after her for being a crappy mom. It just takes one nut.

    • emmie_a says:

      Ha! I was thinking the same exact thing. I just watched that video clip from the Katie show and it seems like Kate is reciting her publicist’s words and smiling on cue — her being ‘nice’ seems all very forced.
      I was going to say that it seems like she sold her soul to the devil in exchange for *fame* and fortune — but in reality, I think she has always been this miserable – it’s just more public now.

      And JMO I don’t think the kids want to be on tv at all. Not even a little bit. But I think Kate brainwashes them into thinking it’s such a great thing.

  2. Christin says:

    Questions, questions…. This is the only remotely interesting part of the Jon and Kate saga at this point (until the mommy/daddy dearest book comes out in a decade or so).

    • Size Does Matter says:

      I like the 70s hairdo. It covers up the ‘toxy tragedy. I think the Botox is causing her forehead to slide down in between her eyes.

  3. erindipity says:

    Omg Kate’s 70s hairdo in the bottom pic is just awful. And she and Jon are both rather awful people, it would seem… I pity their kids. I hope for their sake their parents act better in private than they do when there are cameras around.

    • HappyMom says:

      And we know that’s highly unlikely. I’m sure they’re a million times worse when they’re without the cameras . . .

      • erindipity says:

        Unfortunately I must agree with you. I just hope she’s not messing them all up TOO badly, and that they manage to come out strong, independent, thoughtful, and generous adults after seeing so many examples of what the opposites of all those things get you… All they have to do is google their mother’s name to see how reviled she is for her behavior and attitude.

  4. Dawn says:

    She is just the queen of mean and I hope no one watches her on TLC when they run the new show.

    • FingerBinger says:

      I don’t think anyone will watch the show either. TLC already has Here Comes Honey Boo Boo a family that people actually like. People don’t like Kate Gosselin, TLC doesn’t seem to get that.

  5. Deanne says:

    She seriously can’t hide her inner bitch can she? She just oozes unpleasantness out of every pore. Her poor kids.

  6. Krista says:

    Jon signed away his right to stop those kids from being on TV so that he doesn’t have to pay child support. I don’t feel bad for him.

    • lucy2 says:

      I was just wondering why he didn’t have to sign off on them appearing on a show. If that’s the case, I don’t feel too bad for him either. But I do pity those kids. What a way to grow up. At least they have each other to lean on.

    • emmie_a says:

      No matter what he did, Kate still shouldn’t be exploiting the kids. They don’t belong on tv. And in that respect, I feel bad for John because he wants what is right for the kids but has zero control.

    • jwoolman says:

      I don’t think either part of that sentence is correct. The judge decides who pays child support, if needed, and the kids have been with him a lot and he has to pay all their expenses, Kate won’t even let them take clothes with them. If he pushed for it, she could owe him child support, especially to keep standard if living equal. So it was probably beneficial for Kate if they decided they would just each pay on their own watch. He’s tried before to get the kids off tv, way back when he was certainly paying oodles of child support from the money he had earned on the show. TLC and their lawyers weighed in and Kate got the judge to decide she could make the decision on her own. Jon couldn’t even keep her from scheduling show trips with the kids at times they were supposed to be with him. The judge’s decisions have always been rather baffling, but Pennsylvania doesn’t seem to have the protections for child actors that have developed in California.

    • Jag says:

      I read, too, that he signed away his rights regarding having the kids on television so that he wouldn’t have to pay child support. So him being upset that he wasn’t called is ridiculous, since he has no say in the decision.

  7. mickey says:

    Is Kate their sole legal guardian, the only one who can make decisions on putting the kids on tv?We all know how toxic these two are. He complains about the tv appearances. Does that mean his permission is not needed? If he has a legal say, then say it. If not, then fight for your kids in court and not on Access Hollywood.

    • MollyB says:

      I believe as part of their divorce/custody arrangement, he signed away any rights to object to the kids being on TV in exchange for not having to pay Kate any child support. So, when he cries to the tree tops about how toxic and awful their tv appearances are (and I happen to agree), he valued his money more than his kids when push came to shove.

      • Bridget says:

        I don’t think that’s correct – Kate supposedly waived child support payments, but that was only in 2012, long after the Gosselin kids were off television. The whole ‘trading off the child support for lettng the kids be on TV) is totally unsupported, though.

  8. JudyK says:

    Steve was just in NYC w/ Kate…saw him myself in the background of a Terrell Owens (one of the contestants) video…the new Celebrity Apprentice contestants were there. If you can bear to watch the video long enough, you’ll see Steve relaxing in the background (with his legs propped up) like a husband shopping with his wife.

    You can see it for yourself @ RealityTVKids.com.

    • emmie_a says:

      Ugh so she’s going to be on Celebrity Apprentice? I was hoping that was just a bad rumor. Why. why. why??? Her time is done. Although, I guess Celebrity Apprentice is where *celebrities* go when their time is up.

  9. shannon says:

    Wow. I’ve never seen her show(s), so maybe these pictures are out of context. But damn, girl needs a week of wine and comedy shows. Smile dammit! I’m not being judgmental – hell, if I had eight kids, I’d need week-long wine/comedy therapy every month. But pictures of her always look like she just learned she has a tapeworm. Wine and comedy, girl it works. Also, NO married dong. That never ends well for anyone.

    • mayamae says:

      She was tightly wound before she had the kids. She was the typical OCD nurse, and actually thought having twins was a breeze. I think having six more kids and the loss of complete control that follows, along with overnight fame and adulation reinforcing every flaw she inherently had – recipe for disaster. She’s the type of mom who begrudgingly lets her kids get ice cream at an amusement park, then stands by fretting and crying when the ice cream melts and gets the kids sticky.

      Her lovely sister-in-law would periodically take the eight kids, along with her own 3-4 kids. One day Kate’s kids wanted gum. Auntie asked if Kate allows it – kids all lie – yes. Of course, one of the kids gets gum on something (socks and his stuffed animal?). Kate pretty much lost her mind, threw the kid’s beloved stuffed animal away, and called and berated the sister-in-law. She was something else. But it was almost like she couldn’t help herself. I think OCD meds would help take the edge off.

    Omg, who cares about this heartless cyborg.

  11. shannon says:

    In defense of Kate, I did watch ‘Couples Therapy’ with Jon and … wow. He really reminded me of my son’s father (who was 20 at the time, I was 19). I am, by nature, a bit bossy, and he was so young he hadn’t learned how to “man up yet because he didn’t have that nature. It was frustrating, because I felt like I had to do all the heavy lifting. Getting a car loan? I did it. Finding a place to live? I did it. Rental/bank/utilities/car problems – I handled it. Eventually, he matured and he’s been a wonderful father and ex-husband. But Jon reminded me of my ex-husband at 20-years-old while he is in his 30s. I can kinda see where Kate may have gone into super-bitch overdrive just thinking “OMG I guess I’m the only one who can get a handle on this, because he won’t.”

    • erindipity says:

      Yeah, I definitely get frustrated with my husband when, two years after we moved into this house, he STILL can’t be bothered to remembered where the backup toiletries are kept when he runs out of something… He’s an excellent employee and very organized at work, but at home his attitude seems to be “why bother knowing when I can just ask my wife?” It grates, and I make that known sometimes. Some people might call me a bitch for that too, I guess, if they didn’t understand the dynamic behind it. Or maybe even if they did, lol. It just really annoys me that he rarely seems to remember anything I say, even if it’s in direct response to a question he asks me. Even when it’s a question he has asked a million times before. He’s a good man, though, and this is the worst problem we have – so really, we’re doing just fine as a couple. 🙂

    • mayamae says:

      I do see some of what you describe in Jon, but I don’t think he’s as bad as that. Remember that for a long time, Jon held down a full time job – which is just minimal. But he would get up in the morning, make Kate’s coffee and place at her bedside, go to work, come home and play with the kids, prepare all the kids for dinner, cut the food/put on bibs/stand table side while they eat. Then he also bathed the six little ones, supervised the two older girls bathing, and helped put them to bed. He also frequently folded laundry with her in the evening. I think he was very disciplined during that time. He also single handedly moved most of their belongings from house to house. He would pack and load the truck while also being responsible for the kids.

      I think that Kate’s cracking whip helped keep him on track, but she was the type who screamed at him on camera for failing to use a stupid coupon when they moved into their million dollar home.

  12. Muffy says:

    She needs a bodyguard because?

    • jwoolman says:

      I always felt Steve’s role was to keep the unwashed masses away from her. She’s a bundle of phobias, and the thought of strangers brushing against her or shaking her hand may have been a real problem. She doesn’t even like non-strangers too close. She has always preferred to have other people deal with messy things like the kids. Jon did a lot of it originally, then nannies. I guess she could stand nursing work because she could wear gloves etc.

  13. melain says:

    When I read about how badly John and Kate treat each other and their lack of respect for their children, I can’t help but remember that they were unable to produce children together without help from medical science. It’s so sad that they went to the effort to get all of these children and are so careless with such precious and valuable gifts now that they have them.
